If you cut yourself, that cut will heal. In a short time, your stubbed toe will feel better. Even if you break a bone, when properly set, it will mend.
But if you lose your hearing what happens. Can the inner ear heal itself? Will your hearing come back? Can that healing be facilitated by homeopathic treatments?
What is the conceptual foundation for homeopathic medicine?
The basic thought is that homeopathic medicine is natural. You’re treating the whole person, according to this approach, not just the illness. Basically, the human body should have the capacity to activate its own healing ability. Individuals who believe in this think the body will heal quicker than normal if it is given the right encouragement.
What is homeopathic medicine made of?
“Homeo” means “like” and “pathy” has the word “disease” at its root. So the word homeopathy means “like a disease”. This probably sounds odd, after all, why should a cure be called “like a disease?”
But it’s called that because it uses substances like nightshade and arsenic which would be unsafe in large amounts. The idea is that by administering these kinds of substances, you stimulate a natural healing process.
Some individuals believe in homeopathic remedies and other people don’t. It isn’t something that you can easily convince people of either way. What we will deal with is why there are no homeopathic remedies for hearing loss.
Homeopathy might be harmless at best for other parts of the body but with the ears, it can actually result in significant damage.
How hearing works
The inner ear is shaped like a snail shell, called the cochlea. This structure contains little hairs called cilia. When sound is created, these little hairs will vibrate rhythmically. The way in which these hair cells move transmits complex signals to the brain. The brain can decipher these signals to differentiate between a cat’s meow and a car horn. What letters and words are being spoken can also be distinguished.
When a healthy child is born, they have thousands of these tiny hairs. But these hairs decay as you get older and your ears are exposed to infections, loud noises, and other hazards. They bend, break, and die. They can no longer effectively receive sound.
The high-frequency hairs that can pick up sounds like a violin solo, birds chirping, or the children playing are the most sensitive. So if damage takes place, these are the first to go.
These hairs will never grow back or heal. That’s why protecting your ears is so essential.
Hearing and homeopathy
The body’s natural healing process is believed to be stimulated by homeopathic treatments. But hearing loss doesn’t ever heal. When these hairs are gone, they never grow back.
